Trial Installation Requirements
Below you can find the minimum hardware and software requirements for a ProcessRobot trial installation. 


**Note that since a trial installation is usually needed for demo purposes or in a proof of concept phase, you can easily forego or trade some of the live installation requirements in order to have the environment work in readily available hardware.


Minimum Installation Requirements
A minimum installation can be setup and work in one physical machine, with at least 8GB of RAM (however more is recommended), which will have separate Virtual Machines (VMs) installed, as follows:
1.An active directory server with MS SQL Express 2016, SQL Server Management Studio, ProcessRobot, Control Desk, Process Studio, Dashboard Designer, Dashboard Viewer, and SideBot: 5GB of Ram and 40GB of Hard Disk Space (including windows installation)
2.A VM with Windows 7,8 or 10 in which SoloBot will run: 3GB of Ram and 30GB of hard disk space (including windows installation)

Recommended Installation Requirements
As described above, ProcessRobot can work in one physical machine if absolutely required, however this environment will provide only minimum functionality. The recommended trial installation hardware configuration, is the following:
1.An Active Directory Server (2008, 2012 R2 or 2016): 6 GB Ram, 35 H.D Space
2.A VM with SQL Server Express 2016, SQL Server Management Studio, ProcessRobot Server, Control Desk, Process Studio, Dashboard Viewer and Dashboard Designer: 6GB Ram, 30GB H.D Space
3.A VM with windows 7,8 or 10 with SideBot: 4 GB Ram, 30GB H.D space
4.A VM with Windows 7, 8 or 10 with SoloBot: 4 GB Ram, 30GB H.D space

Live Installation Requirements
In a production installation, hardware requirements are higher, as ProcessRobot will have to deal with a larger amount of robots and processes, handling real data.
